Volvo has a longstanding reputation for top-notch occupant protection and top-notch safety equipment, and for the most part the C30 lives up to that.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, gives the C30 its highest rating of "Good" for frontal offset, side-impact, and rear crashes, as well as roof strength. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't rated the current C30.

The 2013 Volvo C30 includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, front and side airbags, and side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors. There's also the Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS), which monitors the car's maneuvers and may choose to delay certain functions to prevent driver distraction--an incoming phone call, for instance. Optional equipment that's unusual among compact hatchbacks includes both a lane-departure warning system and a rear-obstacle detection system.

 

Conclusion

Among compact hatchbacks, the C30 has a strong safety set.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
